Stretch Marks

Every time I look at myself in the mirror, I get sad and sometimes a little grossed out about how my body has transformed after pregnancy. Then I saw this picture online and it put everything into perspective for me. Now I make a point to remind myself that my body is beautiful because it carried my little Peanut.

"A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me. It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It held you until my arms could, and for that I will always find something beautiful in it."
